Royal London OD cup has been taking a slight backseat with international cricket and the Hundred overshadowing it currently. But, this is one of vital tournaments in the English domestic circuit where players showcase and hone their skills in the white ball format. Kent after their resounding win in their opening match succumbed to loss in their last encounter against Glamorgan. They will look to get back to winning ways in this match. Hampshire started off on a good note by winning their opening match against Worcestershire and will look to continue their momentum going ahead.
Kent batting line-up was Joey Wilson`s century as he shared 90 & 135-run partnerships with Oliver Robinson (50 run) and Alex Blake (66 runs) respectively. Their middle order failed to accelerate in the last 10 overs as they scored just 60 odd runs and ended with 304/8 in their 20 overs.
Their bowlers were taken to the cleaners as they failed to defend the 305-run target. Mathew Quinn and George Linde picked up 2 wicket each but went for runs at over 7 RPO. Navdeep Saini, Grant Stewart, and Hamidullah Qadri bowled pretty decently under 6 RPO and chipped in with a wicket each.
Key players to bet on: Oliver Robinson, George Linde, Mathew Quinn
Ben Compton, Joey Evison, Oliver Robinson (wk), Alex Blake (c), Darren Stevens, George Linde, Grant Stewart, Hamidullah Qadri, Nathan Gilchrist, Matthew Quinn, Navdeep Saini
Hampshire were bowled out for 236 runs inside the 50 overs in the last game. Ben Brown (47 runs), Fletcha Middleton (49 runs), and Scott Curie (43 runs) scored valiant fifties to lead their team`s fightback after early wickets at the top and took them to a fighting total of 236 runs.
Their bowlers were superb on the night as they sinked the opposition to 37/5 in the 13 overs. Ian Holland and Scott Curie took 3 wickets each in the match while Felix Organ and John Turner chipped in with 2 wicket each as they bundled the opposition to 192-all out in 45 overs.

Beckenham will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with just no chances of precipitation. We expect a full match with no weather interruptions.
Kent cricket ground will have some grass cover on the pitch and ball will move off the surface slightly. Batters will struggle to score freely especially with the new ball on this pitch. We expect the average scores to be around 240-260 runs on this pitch.
Teams will opt to chase down the total at this venue as they can pace their innings with the total on mind. The pitch is expected to be fresh and green with a tint of grass on top.
Kent`s batting line-up is on red hot form scoring runs at over 300+ in both the matches. But their bowlers too have given runs at over 300 in both matches so far. Hampshire batters failed to put on a big score but kept pegging away with vital runs in the middle overs. Their bowlers are in superb form and will continue their effectiveness in this match too. We expect Kent to win this match owing to their aggressive batting & home conditions.
Kent will in the match.
